With children heading back to school next week, we think that it's very important to highlight the impact that a school bag can have on a child's body when used incorrectly. Overloaded or incorrectly worn school bags can play a major role in a lot of neck, back and shoulder pain among children.
.Top 7 tips to reduce the pain of going back to school!
1. School bags should not weigh more than 10% of your child's body weight.
2. The school bag should be worn close to the body with heavier items placed nearest to your child's back.
3. Wear the bag on both shoulders at all times.
4. Buy school bags with wide straps that are comfortable on your child's shoulders.
